FORECAST OPEN-CLIP


Return to index of stories...

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

The weekend forecast is shaping up nicely across Southwest Florida.

We're in store for plenty of warmth and sun, but there's also a slight chance for a couple late-day showers along the sea breeze.

Temperatures will be the main headline this weekend as afternoon highs get quite warm; most of the region will top out in the mid to upper 80s, but a few locations may even come very close to 90 degrees.

The breeze stays easterly through the weekend at 5-15 mph.

The atmosphere has moistened up a little over the last couple days, so chances are we won't make it through the weekend completely dry.

A few isolated, widely-spaced showers may pop during the late afternoon and evening both today and Sunday, but overall, rain chances will stay around 20% through the weekend.

As we head in the the upcoming week, we'll be tracking a weakening cool front approaching Southwest Florida by Tuesday and Wednesday. This front will most likely get stretched out and stall over South Florida, leaving us with higher rain chances and more cloud cover by the mid week.

Temperatures will continue today rather warm next week with highs in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. Return to index of stories...
